I'm new to solidworks but i'm getting a hang of it a little.
I'd like to split a circle of diameter 80mm extruded to a height of 8mm into 14 parts such that they look like the diagram below.
Thanks a lot
Copy the sketch onto the face and use the Split feature command.
Hi Jackie Yip, thank you so much for responding. Sincerely appreciate. I'd have a look at it now.
Hereby I've been attached 2 solution for you in this video. Kindly extract the zip file watch the attached video.

Sorry about the initial message. I'm right on the video now. Thank you so much VENKATESH S., really grateful. I'd send some feedback soon as i can.
Hi VENKATESH S.
I have just followed your video but on getting to this point the trim tool doesnt select sketch 2
At that point I've predefined selected the sketch created before applying the split tool. then only I selected the command Split.Thanks and Regards
I have just tried it again and getting same response...i'm supposed to have a second sketch from the extrusion that forms the cylinder but...is it possible for you to kindly send a copy of your .sldpart model?
Thanks VENKATESH S.
Is this what you want ?
Hi John Stoltzfus,
Thanks for responding. My request is splitting the whole body into 14 parts, not just the surface.
Here is the file.
I have no words to really thank you for your help and support.
I'm entirely grateful VENKATESH S.
Is it possible to check for the XYZ coordinates of one or any of the sections of the 14 parts with respect to the centre of mass of the whole body?
Cant follow your words could you kindly elaborate it.
Hi VENKATESH S.,
I have attached two images.
I'd like to get the x , y, z coordinates of one selected body with respect to the centre of mass of the entire 14 bodies.
Use the Mass Properties feature in the evaluate tab.
There is probably not a way for the software to calculate multiple mass properties at once, but you can do two measurements and then compare afterwards.
Thanks Jackie Yip
The file sent wasn't able to open on solidworks 2014 and the previous version used wasn't mine
Any ideas on getting to open this on version 2014?

HI VENKATESH S.
Thanks for the video. However I haven't been able to reproduce this using solidworks 2014 as the previous version used wasn't mine and some features aren't available.
I have tried downgrading this file for 2014 but I cant.
Based on the video concept you can construct your own model in solidworks 2014.
Thanks as I have just made mine based on your video
However I'd like to change the coordinate system...so that the top plane become the right plane.
Thanks as I have figured it out. #
